I may enter this one. I dont need to convert anything and i was needing to paint my second standard bearer anyway. I just need to strip it and then ill get started. I would enter my Bull Centaur standard bearer but it would need much more work done to it as it is in rough shape.

- To enter, you need to take up to 4 photos of your entry and upload them to the internet.  Next, send a PM to Golden Hat (a special user that all Staff have access to) containing the links where the pictures can be found. (Note: This is different from the last competitions!)


Is it possible to upload the pictures directly to the site and tell you in wich thread ?

You can start your contest entry right now, yes.  But, my experience tells me to keep your entry hidden until the polls close.  Revealing entries early reduces the Wow factor of your entry. Wink

Same goes for you Ashur, you can do it that way, but you'd be revealing your entry early which won't help you in the polls!

I second Xander's advice. Don't post your pictures before hand on this website. You can lose votes, and people like to point out the fact that they saw the entry before hand.

Examples:

My guess is wow factor is critical factor in theses competitions, but, if you are like me and are doing theses for the fun of it, then post on the site. Just don't expect to win.

Does the entry have to be able rank up with a unit, or can the model kinda go out in all directions as a display piece might?

That is, does it have to actually function as a standard bearer in a tabletop game?

I'll leave that to Grim...

But why not throw him on a 20mm base and incorporate that into a display piece? Happy

He'll be on a standard issue base. Thats not the thing I'm worried about. I'm meaning more about the pose - arms out to the sides, to the back, etc. The stuff one usually tries to avoid in a rank & file unit because it would have to be put beside other models in close formation.

I have a dumb question:

Can we enter something we already have painted or does it have to be something that has been painted from scratch after the announcement of the competition?

RE: Golden Hat #5 - Painting Competition!Xander 02-25-2008

As I have said in the past, the contests are to inspire creative ideas.  They are meant to motivate, not simply to compare your skills with others.  So while there is almost no way to stop entries that have been already made, it's kind of defeating the purpose.

Got an idea for that model you've always wanted to make, but couldn't find the means to convert it? Seen that bit of artwork and thought 'That would be an awesome model'? Give Warplock a PM, any sculpting/converting request considered Wink

it is a good reason for me to begin my CD army a little bit earlier then planned, so I might join.

*edit*

what view do you need for the pictures?

@GRNDL
The pose can be anything you want.  If you want it to be useful afterwards you might want to design it so it can rank up Wink

@furrie
No more than 4 photos.  So any combination you think shows off the model the best.

I suggest people take loads of photos, then select the best ones once they're on the computer.  Its better that way than leaving it to the last minute and taking whatever photos you had time (light) for, as I've done in the past.


Ever the best of friends Mum. 1953-2011   Sad
